Meet a player that can do it all, all the great ones have it and Deysean fits that category of being a multi faceted talent. The Choctaw junior is a power back that never goes down on the first hit, he is tough and hard nosed. A player that will push hard for the extra yards needed and people say he runs like Samaje Perine.
Its this type of talent that helped him rush for 120 yards at the third string back vs. Shawnee this season. He also scored 2 TDs in that game before facing some cramps in the final two quarters. “My goal is to run past you but if you get in my way I will run through you,” Deysean.
